Was here as a treat (advanced birthday) with friends while visiting the Philippines. They love this place. There was a remarkable drop in the overall quality of experience. The roasts were under seasoned and cold. Sauces didn’t make a difference. “Lechon de Cebu” didn’t taste...anything like the ones I had in Cebu, with barely any herbs and spices to season it. The short rib caldereta was too tough. Fattoush Salad missed the mark by a mile. I am based in the Middle East, where fattoush is a staple side dish. It’s all about the crispy toasted flat bread, the parsley and the bulgur with a lemon and pomegranate dressing. None of those were present in the dish. The Japanese section was at least decent. Desserts? The ice cream were promising but melted and turned to goo pretty quickly. Cassava Cake was dry and gritty which made me think it was undercooked. Everything else had the run of the mill, factory made hotel dessert. Service was spotty. We were told many times that the buffet will promptly start at 12pm but around 11:50am I already saw some customers grab food. No one attended to our table and we often resorted to handing our used plates to the staff at the service counter many times just to give them a hint. They didn’t get the message. For the rate they charge, it’s a crime for them to even lag at the service or have multiple below par dishes. Even my friends who are loyal fans of this restaurant said the same thingMore

Very impressed with our breakfast. Eggs and omelets made to order was great! The selection was fantastic. I loved the Adobe and garlic rice. There were many other items that were just top notch. The only thing I didn't like was the bacon. It was...under cooked and the flavor was off. Maybe because as an American I am use to hickory smoked bacon. This might have been maple or plan flavored. But I couldn't eat it. I like my bacon crunchy. Tomorrow morning when I am back here I will ask if they can cook some crunchy for me. Our server was Jevee. She did really well with our drinks and bringing our eggs. She is still in training and I hope this hotel hires her once she is finished with OJT.More

Excellent service. They go above and beyond to make sure you have a wonderful experience. My husband wanted piniritong talong (fried eggplant) even though it was not on the menu Chef Whellan Roda made sure my husband request was granted. All the servers made sure...we have all we needed. The staff are all friendly and professional. I would give 5 STARS for their services. Thank you very muchMore

She then followed up with hot coffee delivered to...my table. Diani was a great representative of Spice Cafe and City Garden Grand.More

Great variety and quality for a fairly modest priced buffet. Dishes change from one day to the next. Hostess and server, Diani, were all very friendly and attentive.
